I have been following the blog for quite a while. I even have the 2014 CD archive. My question is, I have been storing up rice and beans like a squirrel getting ready for winter. The problem is these are all dense carbohydrate loaded foods. It turns out most of the medications my doctors prescribe are to negate the effects of these types of food. With high blood pressure and high A1C numbers, what’s a fellow to do? I certainly understand that in a crisis I will need that quick energy, but it seems counterproductive to plan on consuming these foods. Thanks for all you do! – Rainbolt
The primary purpose of prepping is to ensure the survival of you and yours. While there is a tried and true formula that meets the needs of the vast majority of people, it isn’t for everyone. If your doctor tells you to avoid the foods that you are storing, it’s time to change strategies. Unless you have a large amount of disposable income, you probably can’t make the change all at once. However, you should begin the change as quickly as possible. Just like when you began storing food, every little bit you put away helps your bottom line. Store what you need to survive.
